When it comes to furnishing your luxury outdoor living room to make it easy to use in any season and any time of the day or night, how often do you think about lighting? The right light in the right place can mean the difference between fully enjoying the space and not having enough illumination to do what you want, when you want to. Let’s take a look at some of the spaces in your backyard oasis that could benefit from a lovely outdoor lamp made specifically to withstand the elements.
One of our favorite ways to enjoy our backyard living area is using it as a reading room. Whether a physical book or electronic one, it’s just so relaxing to curl up on a spacious lounge chair tucked into a dozy corner with a cold beverage and dive into a good read. When daylight starts to wane, there’s no need to go inside. Simply add an outdoor lamp to a chairside occasional table or flat-topped ottoman. This way, you can enjoy reading day or night.
Take a look at this gorgeously styled lamp with its coastal, beach vibe. Its transitional style is perfect for a gorgeous Southern California patio or porch. The finish is a distressed grey coral while the neutral lampshade is composed of crisp linen. Its large size (40” high with a width of 30”) makes it the ideal lamp for casting a lot of light by which to read.
Flanking the Fireplace
Although an outdoor fireplace puts out a lot of warmth and light, it doesn’t illuminate much beyond a few feet in front of the hearth. In order to light a pathway or a seating arrangement around the fireplace, consider adding a pair of flanking floor lamps.
May we suggest a floor lamp such as this San Rafael model? Its classic California Mission style works beautifully in any outdoor environment with views of rolling hills, lots of floral plantings and a focus on the wide expanse of blue sky. The open metalwork of the lamp’s body is finished in a popular oiled bronze color and features a milk-glass cylinder for extra visual appeal. This lamp can be used either indoors or out.
The Dining Table
Although it’s often considered romantic to dine al fresco in muted light, it can make things hard for a diner to distinguish between dishes. A lovely solution is to add table lamps to the dining table.
We recommend going with an outdoor lamp that features a slender base, so to not take up too much real estate on the table. An excellent choice would be the Kanamota Outdoor Table Lamp, which is uniquely crafted to resemble petrified wood. It has a slight mineralized sheen to it that makes the vibe less rustic and more modern. The weather-resistant, Moonlight Silver shade enhances the metallic quality of the base. All of its components are powder-coated to better withstand the elements.
Inside/Outside the Cabana
Finally, an outdoor cabana is such a soothing, comfortable area to lounge that it requires a light fixture of its own. This Elliot Bay Outdoor Table Lamp is an ideal addition. It uses either standard bulbs or LED bulbs and features crisp, contemporary lines with a slightly rustic finish that easily fits right in with nearly any design style.
When furnishing your backyard oasis, don’t forget about the perfect lighting, via outdoor table lamp, for each area.
We often remind our customers that they should treat their backyard oasis similar to a room in their home in regard to decorations, furnishings and outdoor accessories. After all, this space is another living area – one that you might use more often than indoor rooms – so it should be as comfortable and fully equipped as possible. One way to ensure that it is beautifully furnished is to add outdoor artwork to the walls.
Outdoor Artwork? Yes, Please!
We’d hazard to guess that most San Diego homeowners never give a thought to decorating outdoor walls. And if they do, it’s probably with the idea that the artwork must be crafted from metal and protected from the wind, rain, sun and sea salt.
That’s why we are happy to introduce you to a line of outdoor artwork that is meant to withstand the elements. These pieces of art for the walls of your patio, gazebo, porch or cabana are UV resistant, waterproof and printed with archival quality inks. High quality photography suitable to be reproduced in large format is made into gicleé prints with resists erosion and fading.
Each print comes with a hardware kit that allows you to install it on any type of wall, such as concrete, stucco, wood, brick or even aluminum. The installation hooks and stainless steel-reinforced framework ensure that your artwork will stay in place, even in winds up to 60 mph. This high quality outdoor artwork is covered by a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Choices, Choices, Choices
Perhaps the hardest part of adding outdoor artwork to your backyard oasis is selecting from the hundreds of prints available.
There are plenty of choices for gorgeous prints that echo our Southern California beach vibe – sailboats, ocean scenes, sandy vignettes, piers, wharves, palm trees and tides. For a dramatic effect, choose an expansive triptych that can easily decorate an entire wall.
Then again, you may want to go with a completely different subject matter. There are plenty of pieces that are photographs and prints of foreign locales. If beautiful florals are more your style, you have lots to choose from. Rustic country chic that is all the rage right now is nicely represented, as well, with scenes involving old trucks, wooden crates and vintage signs. From animals to landscapes to city scenes and those with LED lights, you can find nearly any subject of interest in our large selection of outdoor artwork.
If you are passionate about decorating for the holidays, you will find lots of choices for Christmas scenes. Each style is also available with lights.
Adding artwork to the walls of your outdoor living space adds that special touch to take it from just another backyard, to an al fresco room that is warm, inviting and fully decorated.
We hope you have enjoyed our blog series this month regarding all the fantastic attractions around the San Diego area. But at the end of the day, your home is where you will stay. It just makes sense to pay the most attention to the comforts, conveniences and amenities in your own backyard oasis, since you spend the majority of time there. In case you have not been shopping for outdoor furnishings and accessories lately, here are several suggestions to make your time at home even more enjoyable.
Build a Better California Room
Ah, the California room. It’s the go-between living area that allows you to enjoy your outdoor landscape and ocean views while maintaining a temperate environment. As such, many San Diego homeowners are often unsure how to furnish and accessorize this space. We firmly believe that if it is a living area, it should include all the comforts you would find in any other room of the home.
Of course, comfortable seating is de rigeur. Outdoor furnishings, including a sofa with plump cushions are always welcome. You may want to include a couple of swivel rocker lounge chairs, as well, which are easy to move out of the sun. Then again, you can’t go wrong with a pair or more of classic Adirondack chairs. Add a serving cart to make enjoying a cocktail in this room a bit easier. These handy little pieces are available in a wide variety of styles to suit your current décor.
Because your California room is protected from insects, it’s also the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening meal. Think about including a bar height table and stools, or a full dining set, with ambient lighting. Include a lazy Susan in the middle for ease of serving food and drinks. Set up a wireless audio system so that you can enjoy your favorite tunes with the click of a remote button.
Comfort Through the Seasons
When you have spent a lot of time and effort turning your backyard into a verdant oasis, you should be able to enjoy it year round. That means adding outdoor furnishings and pieces which ensure your comfort, no matter the outdoor temperature.
In the warmer summer months, one or several shade features will keep you protected from the sun’s rays. Add lights wrapped around the top of the pole and misters along the perimeter for even more comfort. There are even Bluetooth speakers that easily attach to the umbrella’s ribs. Then again a cabana, outfitted with a comfy chaise lounge, portable, battery-operated cooler and occasional table, might be the better choice in your backyard oasis.
As fall transitions to winter, San Diego nights offer crisp coolness. This is when you will want an outdoor fireplace, fire pit, fire urn or fire bowl to keep off the chill. Add a remote control, whenever possible, to make it supremely easy to enjoy radiant heat and mesmerizing flames in seconds.
The Best Relaxation Starts at Home
When you call a little slice of paradise home, you will always enjoy coming back to your own backyard oasis at the end of a day or the end of a trip. Set it up for maximum relaxation and comfort with these outdoor furnishings and more, brought to you by Hauser’s Patio.
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of living in the San Diego area is that we have access to numerous hiking trails and gorgeous outdoor scenery. While there are plenty of options if you want to step outside and get a bit of exercise, Point Loma is one of our favorites. Here’s why.
About Cabrillo National Monument
As you may know, Cabrillo National Monument is the sole such National Park-designated property in San Diego. It was created to memorialize Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s original West Coast landing back in 1542. This National Monument includes several key features: tide pools, the Point Loma Lighthouse, an information center with gift shop, several hiking trails, guided tours and a majestic statue of the explorer. You can drive into Cabrillo National Monument, then decide which areas you’d like to visit and which trails you’d prefer to hike. It is located just beyond the naval base and Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.
What We Love Best About Point Loma
If breathtaking scenery is what you are seeking, it’s hard to beat the hiking trails to Point Loma, which follow a brief portion of the Pacific Ocean coastline. A trip to Point Loma can easily encompass an entire day’s worth of activities, starting with a lovely hike and ending with a trip to the sea caves to explore tide pools. Weekdays are obviously less busy, but if your only chance to visit is on a weekend, arrive as early as possible.
As far as accessing a beach for swimming or sunbathing, Point Loma is not it. Instead, you will find tide pools that reveal their unique collection of near shore creatures at low tide, lit by the golden and russet hues of a San Diego sunset. If large mammals are more your thing, be sure to view the Whale Watch Overlook.
Head for one or all of the walking trails that follow the bluffs on the monument’s west side. That is also where you will find the historic and now defunct Point Loma Lighthouse, a well-preserved 1855 building which includes the keeper’s residence. The culmination of the trail ends at the big stone statue dedicated to Cabrillo. Along the way, gorgeous and long-ranging views of Coronado Island, the navy base, San Diego’s skyline and downtown and even old Mexico inspire moments to stop and take in the scope of varied scenery. The Bayside Trail is your best chance for spotting wildlife – an anomaly in a large urban area such as San Diego – and an expansive view of San Diego Bay.
An additional bonus is that if you are a history buff, you can tour an authentic WWII bunker every second and fourth Saturday of the month and a military history exhibit that covers the role played by Point Loma in both World Wars.
Cabrillo National Monument/Point Loma is representative of some of the best places locally to find gorgeous scenery, history, native wildlife and get in a healthy hike or two – and that’s why we count it as one of our personal favorites.
Did you know? San Diego craft breweries number more here than anywhere else in the country. Not only does our city have more craft brewers than any other, they are ranked as some of the best by experts and tasters alike.
Currently there are more than 130 craft breweries here in San Diego County and that number is growing. To put it in perspective, San Diego County is home to a full one-quarter of those in the entire state of California. Here’s another factoid: Those 130 breweries are more than the entire United States had three decades ago.
While it would take quite a while to get through every single one, here is a short list of those with the best ratings. All of them offer tours and/or tastings, so when you are ready to plan for a fun weekend (or 52), try starting with these San Diego craft breweries.
Mike Hess Brewing
This brewery is the thirty-third to open in San Diego. The operation now includes two locations, in Miramar and North Park, where the brewery produces its craft beers and offers tours and tastings. Craft beers from Mike Hess are considered some of the most unique in the area.
- 7955 Silverton Ave, #1201, San Diego
AleSmith Brewing Company
This brewery was actually founded 22-years ago by a home brewer who found his passion and honed his skill in order to garner hundreds of medals. AleSmith is known for its high alcohol-by-volume beers, IPAs and barrel-aged brews. Their tasting room features draft ales not available anywhere else.
- 9368 Cabot Drive, San Diego
Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery
Although the location (a former dive bar) may be a bit beyond your comfort zone, this small craft brewery is worth a taste. Best known for their Oatmeal Pale Ale, Creamsicle and Sweet Georgia Brown brews, these beers are crafted by passionate brewers whose only care is the taste. Monkey Paw has been referred to as “earnest and authentic.”
- 805 16th Street, San Diego
This brewery is known for its nicely appointed tasting room and beer garden, with 30 taps serving its most popular brews, plus seasonal and specialty ales. You can take a half hour tour of the brewery, which includes a tasting of four beers. What’s special about this company’s brewmaster is that he had the foresight to trademark the term “West Coast IPA.”
- 6550 Mira Mesa Blvd., San Diego
Port Brewing & The Lost Abbey
This is the place to go for innovative and exciting beers. The brewery includes two brands in a single building. Port is your choice for “California-style” brews while Lost Abbey crafts Belgian and sour ales. There is something to please any beer aficionado between the two.
- 155 Mata Way, Suite 104, San Diego
This brewery is newer than the rest (it opened in 2012), but that doesn’t make their craft beers any less tasty. They are known for their IPAs, stouts and Belgian brews with subtle, yet distinct flavors. Choose which ales you which to taste – The Pupil is a local favorite – in three-ounce pours. What we like best about this one is the outdoor patio.
- 8262 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego
Originally a home brewing supply shop, Ballast Point opened as a craft brewery in 1996. In keeping with their location, all their beers are named with a fish or fishing term theme. This one also includes a full restaurant, as well as hand-crafted spirits like whiskey, rum and vodka. Ballast Point is the second largest of the San Diego craft breweries.
- 9045 Carroll Way, San Diego
Here is another craft brewery with a restaurant onsite. It also includes lots of lovely landscaping (waterfalls and gardens) amidst which you can enjoy their carefully crafted ales, such as the Stone IPA and Smoked Porter. Their taproom includes exclusive, limited selections.
- 1999 Citracado Parkway Escondido
This brewery is both kid-friendly and dog-friendly and food trucks onsite offer plenty of eating options. It’s a laid-back location promoting good vibes and a wide variety of beers in their tasting room. They are best known for their IPAs and lower alcohol brews, in keeping with the family friendly atmosphere. Brewery tours are available.
- 4542 30th St., San Diego
Pacific Beach Alehouse
Here’s yet another one of San Diego craft breweries offering onsite food, as well as handcrafted beer. In fact, their restaurant menu is just as highly rated as their brews. You’ll find their beers are an ingredient in many of the restaurant’s sauces, dressings and desserts.
- 721 Grand Ave., San Diego
Why do you live in San Diego? Perhaps the better question is to ask you to count the ways why you love it here. Let’s face it, we live in one of the world’s most beautiful places with a temperate climate and scores of activities to please everyone from the museum buff to the outdoor sports enthusiast – and that is just the tip of the iceberg. If you’ve forgotten, or just become accustomed to, all the beauty and glory and fun surrounding your home here in Southern California, here are a few reasons to get excited again about summer in San Diego.
San Diego is a World Class Destination
Ranked #22 on the 2017 U.S. News and World Report list of the best cities to live based on overall value and quality of life, it’s easy to see why so many people who visit here end up returning and staying for good. San Diego is home to some of the most successful companies in the fields of telecommunications, biotechnology and defense. Top employers in the area include the US Marine Corps and Navy. We have access to highly ranked higher education institutions to get ready to meet the demand of the plethora of highly skilled employment opportunities.
Of course, tourism is a vibrant industry here, as well. No doubt this is largely due to the 70 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline. In fact, San Diego is often referred to as California’s “Beach City.” Summer in San Diego is the peak season for enjoying our hundreds of beaches and the numerous water sports provided.
Living here means you are nearly guaranteed to enjoy beautiful, sunny days with highs in the mid-sixties to low-seventies year-round. In addition to an exciting night life, we residents are treated to world-class restaurants, craft beer distilleries, plus plenty of professional sports games, cultural events, farmer’s markets and fairs and festivals.
Renew Your Love Affair with San Diego
Isn’t it time you got excited about summer in San Diego again? To wake up every morning to beautiful weather, start your day with a run along the beach and then make plans for the rest of your glorious summer day? Your options may include attending a summer concert, taking a ferry ride to Coronado Island for snorkeling, tubing at La Jolla Indian Reservation and ending the day with a bonfire on the beach, grilling fresh seafood and your farmer’s market finds while watching a fantastic sunset take shape. Remember the first time you visited our lovely city and strive to see it again through the eyes of a tourist.
You are lucky enough to live in one of the country’s best cities. Filled with non-stop adventures, new experiences and old favorites, it is up to you to take advantage of everything offered here.

Good vibrations to all and to all a great end of one season while looking forward to the next!
There is one outdoor furnishing that needs to be a part of every luxury San Diego outdoor living room: a shade feature. No matter how many deeply cushioned seating pieces or occasional tables and ottomans for comfort you include, this space would not be complete without shaded areas throughout. Yes, you probably already have a covered patio, but why limit your time outdoors to one area? The best way to take advantage of the gorgeous views and beautiful greenery in your backyard is to develop several, small seating areas that invite you and your guests to roam about and enjoy it all. And if turning your backyard oasis into a resort-style staycation destination is the goal, then nothing but TUUCI shade features will do.
Why Choose TUUCI Shade Features?
There are many brands on the market that offer outdoor umbrellas for consumers. But there is only one brand that we feel best exemplifies the luxury lifestyle in San Diego and that’s TUUCI shade features and umbrellas. Their designs are strikingly unique and engineered to last for years in a marine climate. The head-turning shapes and styles will complement any outdoor décor. TUUCI umbrellas are an investment in your backyard oasis that you will not regret.
TUUCI Shade Features are a Poolside Must
TUUCI shade features are a natural addition to a swimming pool area. But how best to use them in order to invoke a resort atmosphere in your own backyard? Take a look at these images for ideas.
Here, the homeowner has really embraced a resort-style backyard by lining up lounge chairs alongside the pool and using a TUUCI umbrella to individually shade each one. This provides a very luxurious experience for your family or guests.
This Ocean Master Crescent umbrella has a large span that easily provides shade to a pair of lounge chairs poolside. This is an ideal option when you have limited space available on the pool deck.
Lastly, here is a lovely arrangement of comfy sofa and chairs next to the pool, shaded by a Vineyard Shade Pod Cantilever umbrella for ultimate shade coverage.
TUUCI Shade Features Help You Enjoy the View
The pool is not the only place where TUUCI shade features are a welcome addition to your backyard oasis. Wherever you place an outdoor seating area to enjoy the fantastic view from your home is the perfect place to add a TUUCI umbrella so you can relax in comfort and style.
This view of an urban island is enhanced by a pair of deeply cushioned chairs shaded by a Vineyard Classic Cantilever umbrella.
Look how this gorgeous Manta umbrella from TUUCI strikes a chord against the blue sky and a classic lighthouse on the horizon. Isn’t this unique shape evocative of a resort atmosphere?
If you are lucky enough to have a beach in your backyard, this Vineyard Fiberflex Classic umbrella is a perfect choice for a mobile shade feature to keep you cool while enjoying the water.
For a luxury outdoor living room that provides the stylish comfort of a resort, TUUCI shade features are designed to be both functional and fabulous.
You already live in one of the world’s most beautiful locales, so why plan a vacation away when you can simply stay home and enjoy the view? If your backyard oasis could use a bit of planning for seating arrangements that take full advantage of the gorgeous San Diego landscape, try incorporating Barlow Tyrie resort style furniture.
Why Choose Barlow Tyrie Resort Style Furniture for Your Backyard?
A peaceful setting and thoughtful arrangement of furnishings require the best quality outdoor furniture available. To that end, British, family-owned business Barlow Tyrie is a natural choice. The company is world renowned for their ergonomic designs that are crafted from some of the most beautiful and durable materials found anywhere on earth. These include teak wood, powder-coated aluminum, eucalyptus, stainless steel and upholstery fabric of hand-woven synthetic fibers. The modern classic style of their dining, seating, shade and storage pieces are a perfect match for the laid-back luxury of our San Diego lifestyle.
Every resort-style outdoor living area starts with a place where you are invited to sit down, prop up your feet, enjoy an adult beverage and take in the view. Whether your backyard fronts the brilliant blue waves of the ocean or is a perfectly manicured garden full of lush greenery, it is a landscape that is meant to be savored and enjoyed.
Consider the position of your seating pieces from the Barlow Tyrie resort style furniture collection carefully, so that they take full advantage of whatever view you have.
Every five-star resort features quiet places carved out of the landscape where guests can stroll and rest on strategically placed benches. This is an important feature for your backyard oasis, too. Look at how this one simple bench easily evokes a feeling of relaxation and invites you to stop and enjoy the view.
Another important aspect of a luxury outdoor living space is an area specifically for dining al fresco. Look at the example above, which shows how an amply-sized dining table and chairs can be strategically situated to take advantage of a fantastic view. In this case, it’s the city skyline, but in your backyard it may be a moonlight-kissed beach or a flower garden that practically glows in a wash of subtle landscaping lights. In either case, make sure you provide enough seats for everyone to be comfortable.
In addition to lounging and dining areas, make sure you carve out enough space in your luxury outdoor living room to include plush, deep seating for everyday enjoyment. We’re talking about sofas and sectionals, along with occasional tables for convenience. Don’t forget about shading the area appropriately, as shown in the above photo. The idea is to make it as comfortable as possible, and a sofa and chairs along with parasol from the Barlow Tyrie resort style furniture collection will do just that, in high style.
Shop now for the luxury Barlow Tyrie resort style furniture that will turn your backyard oasis into a resort-style space that invites you to take a staycation.
There are few icons that evoke an image of a beach party better than Tommy Bahama. The famed designer’s outdoor furnishings are perfectly matched to an oceanside gala atmosphere – and one that you can easily create in your own backyard. Here’s how to plan a staycation party with pieces from the Tommy Bahama Outdoor furniture collection.
Get the Party Started
Every good staycation party starts with beverages and hors d’oeuvres. And the best way to make sure you and your guests enjoy a bit to drink and eat is by strategically placing seating areas around your backyard oasis.
As shown in the image above, poolside is a fantastic place to get the party started. Although this Royal Kahala Black Sands grouping from Tommy Bahama Outdoor furniture is meant to be intimate, you could easily add more of these deeply cushioned, comfy chairs around a fire pit table.
For more of a cocktail party feel, consider substituting a bar height table and bar stools. The Royal Kahala Black Sands collection also features a grouping cocktail table, a number of which are perfect for scattering throughout your backyard landscape for a place your guests can set their drinks.
Here’s another idea: provide a bar where your guests can be served the drink of their choice while lounging on comfy bar stools. This Blue Olive bar fits the bill perfectly – and looks right at home in a Mediterranean or contemporary styled outdoor living area. You can play bartender, or hire someone else to do it so you truly feel as if you are on vacation in your own home.
Cozy Seating for Bigger Parties
Another seating option is a sofa or sectional. This Ocean Club Pacifica sectional from the Tommy Bahama Outdoor furniture collection does the job of seating several people in comfort beautifully. Once again, the poolside setting is ideal for creating a calm, resort-like atmosphere and the fire pit adds another layer of mesmerizing scenery.
A more traditional outdoor sofa might be a better choice based on your backyard landscaping. Include one or more ottomans for the perfect place to set a drink during a party or prop your feet when all the guests have gone for the night.
Dinner is Served
Some staycation parties may revolve around a full dinner, rather than just appetizers. This is when you will need a larger dining table and chairs to accommodate your guests.
This Island Estate Lanai dining set from Tommy Bahama Outdoor furniture looks right at home in a backyard oasis filled with palm trees and tropical vegetation. You will love waking up and enjoying coffee and breakfast at this table, then setting the scene for an evening soiree centered around fantastic food.
Add a buffet/console table for storing serving pieces and linens to keep things neat and tidy when not in use, but handy for staycation parties.
Why not stay home this year and enjoy a staycation party with your friends and family? Sprucing up your backyard oasis with Tommy Bahama Outdoor furniture makes it easy to kick back, relax and enjoy a party in the comfort of your own home.
This summer, there is no need to leave town in order to enjoy a resort-style vacation. You can relax in high style at home with just a few minor adjustments to your luxury outdoor living area. In this article, we provide tips for turning your backyard into a resort-style space that invites you to stay home and take it easy, featuring upscale Brown Jordan furniture.
Enjoy the View
The number one way to transform your backyard into a resort is to take full advantage of the gorgeous view. For many of us in the San Diego area, that means a sweeping expanse of serene blue ocean waves, such as pictured here. Although the Elements Woven sectional sofa is portrayed facing the camera, by turning it around to face the ocean, it provides a comfortable way to enjoy the ocean view in this homeowner’s backyard oasis. The table, as well as the end of the right section, are crafted specifically as the perfect place for a drink, a plate or an electronic device.
Even if your backyard view does not include the big blue, you can still take advantage of its best features by including a seating arrangement of Brown Jordan furniture situated where you can best enjoy the scenery.
Bring the Indoors Out
Here’s another cue taken from a high-end resort: create a living room outdoors with Brown Jordan furniture. The idea is to carve out a space where you can be just as comfortable doing all the things you enjoy indoors, out, including watching TV, reading a magazine or scrolling through social media.
The above image shows this concept beautifully. The Connexion sectional sofa, with its loose cushions, invites you to sink into its comfortable depths, sheltered from the hot sun by the shade of the patio cover. The versatile ottoman provides a great place to steady a tray of drinks and/or food. The Brown Jordan side table easily holds entertainment options, such as books and a Bluetooth speaker. The vase of fresh flowers really makes it apparent that this homeowner embraces the idea of bringing the indoors out.
Create Lovely Walkways
As depicted in the photo above, an arrangement of greenery and flowering plants creates a calm and soothing outdoor retreat. It doesn’t have to be a large area, just enough to feature several different kinds of foliage. A leisurely stroll through beautifully landscaped areas such as this is just the ticket for at-home relaxation.
Once again, Brown Jordan furniture takes this concept to a new level. By adding a single, low-slung chair and ottoman, you are instantly invited to sit down and relax while taking in the beauty of your surroundings. The wide, leather straps of this Kantan Brass by Brown Jordan duo envelop your body in comfort while the perfectly proportioned ottoman invites you to slip off your shoes and let your feet take advantage of a cool ocean breeze.
This year, consider a staycation in your own resort, style backyard oasis, thanks to Brown Jordan furniture and these arrangement tips.

Thieves Hit Pacific Beach Homes
You may not be aware of this story that was covered locally on CBS 8 in March of this year. It details a brazen thief who was caught on surveillance camera calmly walking away with pieces of upscale patio furniture throughout the Pacific Beach community. He was not only brazen, he was prolific – leaving behind bare backyards throughout the area until he was apprehended March 26th. This is an interesting news story to watch, since it is such a chronic problem here in Southern California.
The Happy Ending to This Story
Luckily, Jeremy and Elsa Hodges viewed the same story on television. And luckily, they are the generous and kind owners of Hauser’s Patio. Jeremy and Elsa stepped in and stepped up to help out the family whose outdoor furniture was stolen. Although there are plenty of people in the world who feel no remorse for taking property owned by others, there are also those like the Hodges who feel compelled to help in any way possible.
Their solution? To replace the burgled family’s patio furnishings. This is a must-see video that will warm your heart.
Patio Furniture Theft is a Rampant Problem
Unfortunately, the theft of luxury outdoor furnishings is rampant, particularly here along the Pacific Coast. Thieves know that homeowners here are proud of their luxury outdoor living rooms. They take advantage of the fact that patios are often open to the beach and thus easy to access. Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before a thief finds his way to your house.

We invite you to visit Hauser’s Patio so we can review several options with you. We can recommend products and services that help secure your investment in luxury patio furniture from thieves.

Your luxury outdoor living area is not like anyone else’s – so why should your shade structures look the same as theirs? When you want a very specific style and know exactly what you are looking for, a great option is ordering a custom umbrella online. With just a few clicks, you can select the features you want, along with the perfect style of canopy. Here are some of the features you can select when designing a custom umbrella that makes a grand statement.
Let’s get straight to the point – the one feature of your custom umbrella that makes it stand out from all the rest is the color and/or pattern of the canopy and valance. Our custom umbrella selection uses Sunbrella fabric. This outdoor fabric is specifically made to keep its good looks no matter what it is subjected to. That is because the fabric is solution dyed, instead of printed. Sunbrella outdoor fabric is resistant to water, mold, mildew and fading, water resistant and extremely durable.
While it’s good to know that your custom umbrella will easily withstand weather, sun and water, what makes you custom umbrella so beautiful is the fabric style you choose. There are various patterns, colors and textures to select from, depending on the style of umbrella best suited to your space (octagonal or rectangular, stationary or mobile, cantilever or market).
Frame Finish and Mounting Options
Here is another way you can customize an outdoor umbrella and make it unique: by selecting the frame finish. Our octagonal umbrellas with push button tilt allow you to choose from six different finishes – light to dark. Each color makes a subtle difference in the overall look of the umbrella.
Speaking of frames, how will you mount your custom umbrella? Some of our umbrellas, such as a cantilever model, allow you to permanently mount them in ground, in a pool deck or similar material. While we do recommend securely mounting your custom umbrella, we realize this isn’t always an option. In this case, you can simply order your umbrella with a sturdy stand.
Type of Canopy
There are also various options for the canopy of your custom umbrella, including size. In a market style, octagonal umbrella, you can choose to add another wind vent (one wind vent is standard). Another choice is a designer cover, which features double wind vent covers in more than one type of fabric. A designer cover really allows you to get creative with the look of your umbrella.
Many of our custom umbrellas are available with the option to add a valance. This is just one more unique little touch that truly makes your custom-designed umbrella make a statement and stand out from the crowd.
Make a Statement in Your Backyard with a Custom Umbrella
With all the various ways you can design a custom umbrella that fits your luxury backyard perfectly, why wait? We invite you to browse through the selections online and find the umbrella you are interested in, then have fun choosing options to make it uniquely yours.
Hauser’s Patio is pleased to introduce a new way for you to get the beautiful, custom umbrella you need to top off the décor in your luxury outdoor living room. It’s as easy as clicking on the options you desire, right here on our website. You do not even need to visit our extensive showroom – although we’d love to be able to help you in person. But if you know what you want and you are pressed for time, you can easily order your own custom umbrella online in seconds and have it shipped straight to your home. Here’s what you need to know about this fantastic new website feature.
What Umbrellas Can You Customize Online?
All of the lovely shade umbrellas in our line of Treasure Garden products are available for sale online. And all of them allow you to customize at least one or more features. So no matter if you are looking for a cantilever umbrella, a tilting umbrella, a stationary umbrella or one that is fit for commercial use, you have plenty of options to make it look exactly as you’d like. You can choose from an octagonal or rectangular shape in most styles, as well.
What Features Can You Design For Your Custom Umbrella Online?
This really depends on the umbrella you choose. Let’s take a look at one popular custom umbrella that you can order online with plenty of options for design: the Polaris Cantilever Umbrella. This is a commercial grade shade feature that is quite durable but also beautiful.
This custom umbrella online is a wonderful choice for a luxury outdoor living area that needs the ability to move shade in different directions. It is available in three different sizes – from just over 9’ to 11’ in diameter – so it provides adequate shade coverage around the pool, on a backyard deck or across an open patio.
The canopy of this custom umbrella is crafted from marine weight Sunbrella fabric, specifically manufactured to stand up to the rigors of our Pacific coastal weather. Whether it’s sun, wind or sea spray, Sunbrella material ensures that your custom umbrella looks and functions perfectly for years. Choose from 52 gorgeous, bright colors sure to complement your outdoor décor. Add a valance if you prefer the extra shade coverage and a bit of design flair.
Next, determine where your customized umbrella will find a home. This determines the type of base required for installation. You have a choice to make your umbrella freestanding, so it can move wherever you desire, or mounted in-ground as a stationary fixture.
Take a Look at Each Custom Umbrella Online
The Polaris Cantilever Umbrella made by Treasure Garden is just one of the options you have here at Hauser’s Patio to design a custom umbrella online. Browse through all the models and have fun picking and choosing the features and fabric you want for your new outdoor shade structure.
Did you know? If you are planning to add a majestic fireplace to your luxury outdoor living space, you can special order one with custom features. And you don’t even need to come into our expansive showroom (although we welcome personal visits) – you can actually order an outdoor gas fireplace online just as you desire. At Hauser’s Patio, we are proud to introduce this handy new feature on our website and introduce you to the gorgeous fireplace styles we carry.
American Fyre Outdoor Gas Fireplaces
We have chosen American Fyre as our vendor for outdoor gas fireplaces. This is because they make superior products crafted from glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). This composite material does not rust and will not burn. In addition, GFRC protects other materials nearby from heat. It is lightweight, yet extremely strong and durable as well as resistant to severe weather conditions like sun, high moisture and sea salt spray.
But more than the way GFRC is durable is the beautiful look and textured feel of natural stone that it imparts to American Fyre outdoor gas fireplaces. This versatile material also allows the company to design with many different shapes, textures and colors.
Choose Your Customized Options
First, determine the size of your outdoor gas fireplace. All of the models referenced above are available in different sizes and configurations.
Now think about the logistics of installing your outdoor gas fireplace. You can choose whether or not your model is vented. This determines where the excess heat is displaced – through a vent or through the front of the hearth. You also have a choice about where the gas source comes into the fireplace (from the back or underneath) and where to place the gas valve (right or left).
Once you’ve selected the model you are interested in, take some time to consider which aesthetic options will work best in your application. There are four colors to choose from: light or dark and two shades in between. Each pigment shade is blended with the GFRC material so it is cast all the way throughout the fireplace and will never crack, chip or fade.
With the color specified, this is the perfect time to add fire media for your outdoor gas fireplace online order. While natural-looking logs are always a popular option, you may want to update your hearth with stones, fyre glass or fyre gems for a totally modern look.
It Couldn’t Be Easier to Order a Custom Gas Fireplace Online
We invite you to browse through our site and find the American Fyre gas fireplace online that best suits your needs and order it today. It does take several weeks for your custom fireplace to be delivered, so the sooner the better. In no time you will be able to easily install your new outdoor gas fireplace and enjoy its warmth and cozy ambience for years to come.
You are a discriminating Southern California homeowner who is passionate about creating a luxurious backyard oasis. So the last thing you want to worry about is having cookie-cutter features installed. That’s why Hauser’s Patio now has custom outdoor fireplaces to add a touch of cozy warmth and elegant beauty to your outdoor living space. One of those is the Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace by American Fyre. Here’s what you need to know about this classically styled, gas-burning fireplace.
Why Choose American Fyre?
At Hauser’s Patio, we carefully vet each and every manufacturer whose outdoor furnishing and accessory lines we carry. American Fyre is no exception to this rule. Not only are their designs masterfully crafted from glass-reinforced concrete meant to last long past their three-year warranty period, they are available with lots of customizable options. This makes American Fyre, and particularly the Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace, a very popular choice with our discerning clientele.
Customize the Basics
The Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace is fueled by natural gas or propane, and it comes with a firebox liner. You can customize features such as whether or not you want the fireplace vented (which exhausts heat out the top or back of the unit) and where to place the key valve (either on the right or left side). You choose where the gas source comes from; the back (which requires extra clearance space) and underneath the fireplace are the two options.
Customize Its Looks
First of all, the Grand Cordova is available in several different sizes and configurations. Select which one will work best in your luxury outdoor living room based on its location and any size restrictions. There is everything from a Grand to Grand Petite to Reduced in terms of size. The various models all look just a little bit different in terms of height and style and hearth tailoring, as well.
What color scheme does your backyard oasis use? You will be glad to know there are four different options for the color of the Sedona heavy texture finish on the Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace – everything from light to dark.
Customize your outdoor gas fireplace further by opting to add accessories such as a rain cap, scroll screen and protector plate. Of course, the species and look of the gas log set you choose also make a big difference in its style.
A Customized Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace is What You Need
Will all its features, durability and ways to customize the look and functionality of a Grand Cordova Outdoor Fireplace from American Fyre, why not picture it gracing your backyard oasis. Both stylish during the day and inviting on chilly nights, a customizable outdoor gas fireplace from American Fyre is just the thing for every luxury San Diego outdoor living room.
You enjoy the finer things in your life. And so you should. You live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and your luxury outdoor living space should be set up as an al fresco room that invites you to sit back, relax, unwind and enjoy a spectacular view. To enhance that experience, why not consider adding an outdoor cocktail bar or lounge area? It’s easy to create an upscale, comfortable place when you choose pieces from the Tommy Bahama Blue Olive Collection.
What’s Your Vibe?
Whether you are mad about martinis, a craft beer enthusiast or a wine connoisseur, the classic design of the Tommy Bahama Blue Olive Collection is sure to resonate with your sense of style and taste. The lines are clean and contemporary, so they blend well with any type of décor you may already have in your luxury outdoor living room. These pieces are crafted from textured aluminum and dressed in all-weather wicker with a channeled herringbone design. This elegant design is made by fusing five different colors of synthetic wicker in each strand.
Make the outdoor furnishings you choose from the Tommy Bahama Blue Olive Collection a perfect fit for your backyard oasis by customizing them. You have a choice of colors for the Weatherstone top, which resembles the beautiful patterns and hues found in natural slate. Another option is the durable WeatherGuard cushion fabric, which can be ordered in a wide variety of colors and subtle patterns.
Put Together Your Outdoor Cocktail Bar
Let’s start with a Blue Olive buffet table, which is the ideal place to store mixers, ice buckets and glassware. Nearby, add a bistro table and surround it with two to four swivel bar stools. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail along with a few hors d’oeuvres on the back patio all year round. Or, go with the more traditional setup of sofa and cocktail table.
Beyond the patio, add a Blue Olive fire pit. This is the place where you and your guests will gather each evening and maybe even during the day, especially in the cooler months. You will definitely need lots of plush, comfortable seating in the form of a pair of lounge chairs or gliders and perhaps an ottoman or two. The ottomans are great pieces to include in your outdoor cocktail bar since they take up little space and can easily be moved from one area to the next. Opt for a storage ottoman to get even more mileage out of this useful little gem.
Lastly, consider scattering several Blue Olive end tables throughout your luxury outdoor area. These are very handy during larger parties, when you may need to add extra seating, so your guests have a convenient place to set their drinks.
Design Today, Enjoy Tomorrow
Of course, your luxury outdoor cocktail bar will only be in your dreams unless you get started designing it. We understand that you may need a bit of help sorting through all the options for the sophisticated pieces in the Tommy Bahama Blue Olive Collection. That’s what we are here to do. Let’s get your cocktail bar furnishings ordered today so you can enjoy your luxury outdoor living space soon.
Now is the time to get outdoors and enjoy the great spring weather in San Diego. For most of us, that means relaxing on the back deck while enjoying a mouthwatering barbecue, a carefully crafted cocktail or a spectacular sunset. But chances are your backyard oasis could use a bit of a refresh in the way of new outdoor furniture. If that is the case, consider the Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection to dress up your deck in tropical style.
About the Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection
Brown Jordan is the gold standard when it comes to luxury outdoor furnishings designed in classic styles. Their high quality pieces are made from durable aluminum and upholstery options specifically designed to withstand the sometimes brutal Southern California sun and sea spray.
With the Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection, expect nothing less than the superior construction that is the hallmark of this company’s outdoor furniture lines. This collection is actually based on one originally created in 1967 by Hall Bradley. It is inspired by classic Chippendale lines and reimagined with today’s expert manufacturing and design techniques. The seating pieces in the Calcutta collection are characterized by an exotic bamboo pattern and graceful, tapered legs. There are several options for tables: glass or cast tops, small to large sizes, a slot for an umbrella and a stylish “x” brace that furthers the tropical vibe.
Tips for Using Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection to Dress Up Your Deck
Using these elegantly designed pieces to dress up your deck is simple. Here are a few design tips to help you incorporate Calcutta furnishings to achieve your goals.
How Do Use Your Backyard Oasis?
The first consideration is the activities you typically engage in outdoors. Is it just you and a spouse who enjoy reading, cocktail hour and intimate nights in front of a fire? Or do you have a passion for entertaining and expect lots of guests to visit your home throughout the summer? Perhaps you’ve got kids who often invite friends over for pool parties and games. Each of these scenarios requires different outdoor furnishings and accessories.
Make Sure the Seating is Super Comfy
You won’t ever use your luxury outdoor living room unless it has plush and plentiful seating. This is where it’s easy to choose pieces from the Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection. There are plenty of chairs with deep upholstery, which is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. In our opinion, a couple of chaise lounges are de rigeur for any backyard deck. Be sure to add lots of throw pillows, not only for a pop of bright color, but to add to your comfort. Plus, replacing pillows is an easy way to update your outdoor furnishings next year.
Add Outdoor Furniture that Makes Your Deck Feel like a Room
Don’t forget about the little things that make a big difference when it comes to comfort and functionality. We’re talking about things like occasional tables sprinkled throughout seating arrangements, a bistro table and chairs to enjoy your morning coffee, an ottoman to rest your feet and an umbrella for your outdoor dining table to keep the elements at bay.
The Brown Jordan Calcutta Collection makes it easy to dress up your deck and get it ready to use every day – no matter how you and your family enjoy time outdoors.
